    Can a whale attack a ship? The shipwrecked crew of the whaleship Essex was living proof that it could when a whale displayed a fury never before witnessed, ramming and sinking their vessel in a matter of minutes in November 1820. The story of their survival is one rarely spoken of by Nantucketers even to this day, but National Book Award-winning author Nathaniel Philbrick courageously brings every shocking detail into the light.

    Mark says: "So great I want to hear the longer version."
    "No need for an Albino Whale"

    What does Taylor Mali bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pronounces the 'H' in Whale... a minor annoyance


    Any additional comments?

    Great true story. If you want a maritime adventure of survival and a historical account of the yester-year whaling days, together with the power a true story envokes, this is for you.
